If you're looking for a unique twist on your team name, you can also use a Z in place of an S to make your team name plural. Check out the Oddballz jersey above where they designed their jerseys and team name with a Z!


What number is the most common for custom jerseys?

The most common number used for custom jerseys is the number 1. This is due to the fact that the number one is often used to designate the team captain, scorekeeper, or the MVP star player on a team.


Other than the number 1, single digits are a much less common choice with our custom jerseys. A lot of players that do have a single digit number, such as 2 or 5, will often opt for the double digit version starting with a zero, like 02 or 05.


The most common double digit numbers used on our custom jerseys are 55, 22, 11, and other matching numbers. The least common combination of these matching digits is 66, with only 3 players opting to choose this player number!
